Spring is in full bloom – sun-kissed days and star-studded summer nights are right around the corner. This is the perfect time to refresh your al fresco area and extend your living, dining and entertaining space to the back yard or balcony. We’ve picked out five of our favourites from the current Domayne Al Fresco Style 2016 Furniture Collection catalogue to seamlessly unite your indoor and outdoor space and create a cohesive flow between the two areas.
1. ‘Wesport’ Outdoor Collection
The ‘Westport’ is the complete outdoor collection replete with a modular lounge and a dining setting, plus a sunlounger! The 5-Piece Lounge Package includes a modular configuration consisting of two 1-arm sofas and a corner piece as well as a separate armchair and a matching coffee table. Featuring a Scandi-inspired design with a subtle sandy-coloured synthetic wicker rope-weave, tastefully tapered legs and matching seat and back cushions in a subdued navy hue, this range achieves the right balance between indoor style and outdoor functionality, making it perfect for your porch or patio.
2. ‘Santorini’ 5-Piece Outdoor Lounge Package
The classic ‘Santorini’ is a timeless outdoor lounge suite showcasing the simple yet sophisticated allure of hand-woven synthetic wicker in a natural beige and brown colour combination. Offering incredible comfort and featuring the ever-popular arrangement of a 3-seater sofa with two armchairs plus two matching coffee tables – this beauty is just the thing to transform your balcony into an inviting al fresco oasis where you can spend time basking in the warm weather.
3. ‘Lausanne’ 5-Piece Outdoor Bar Setting
We’ve raised the bar so you can host the perfect summer soirée with the casual styling of our Nordic-inspired ‘Lausanne’ bar arrangement. The chic setting includes a two-toned high table and four outdoor barstools in a tub-like design, making it the ideal choice to enjoy a laidback outdoor family BBQ on lazy Sundays or to impress your guests at your next indoor cocktails-and-canapés-hour. Featuring eucalyptus timber legs and a weather-resistant Duranite® tabletop, this setting has been designed to endure the Australian climate. Duranite® is a quality fibre cement board coated with a multi-layer polymer-based paint, which goes through other coating stages as well as a hardening process and UV treatment that makes it incredibly weather-resistant, scratch-resistant and low maintenance.
4. ‘Casa’ Outdoor Collection
Bring your casa to life with our sublime ‘Casa’ outdoor furniture collection. Featuring a 3-Piece Outdoor Lounge Setting (pictured at the top of the page) and dining furniture, which includes a sleek FSC-approved teak dining table with a stained white-wash aged finish as well as hand-woven synthetic wicker carver chairs in a fresh white colourway (as shown above), this selection is perfect for those who want to achieve the luxury look and feel of a resort-style holiday vibe right at home.
5. Indoor Plants
Take your colour cue from nature in full bloom and fill your interiors with our vibrantly verdant faux plants and ferns that look just like the real thing. Easier to maintain, without the risk of browning or wilting, our indoor plant collection is great those who adore greenery but lack the time or green thumb to maintain temperamental flora. Choose from the ‘Bush’ Kiwi Hanging Vine, loose ‘Maidenhair’ Fern or the ‘Succulent’ Flap Jack to name just a few. Display your new spoils in our stylishly raw and rustic themed planters, including the ‘Concrete’ Vase, ‘Bonnie’ Planter or the ‘Belly’ Basket.
